I had a class yesterday and we made three cards, one of which I am going to share with you today! I was inspired by Priscilla Ivler. I LOVE getting ideas from others and tweaking it a bit!
Here is the card we made:
Isn’t it stunning?!! It’s not a ‘hard’ card, you just have to work on getting the thinlit to let go of the paper without ripping it. My Die Brush has seen better days and the bristles are falling out! Yay! We get a new one in the NEW catalog!!
Here is the inside:
Everyone at class loved it! And in person it is even prettier than here! I know it’s hard to believe!
This is going to be a quick post today, if you want the dimensions just let me know and I will send them to you!
I was inspired by Daniela Hödl when I made this card! She made this stunning card:
Since I had to translate her blog I wasn’t able to see what size the original was. I didn’t do the entire part that she did, but when I do a scrapbook page this is what I want!!
So, here’s mine:
And the inside:
Ok, I said I was inspired, but I ended up doing it totally different! BUT now I have the other one on my computer to do another time! 🙂
I added pearls to some of the front, they are on the outside of the Medallion and in the middle and right smack dab in the center! It’s hard to see in my picture…….
I used 2 of the New In Colors Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst. For the Berry Burst, I stamped on scrap THEN on my card (this is called stamped off), this gives the Berry two different hues!
The ribbon is #144135, so on June 1st you can order it! Hostess code for this month is: 97H62RVK IF you order from me, I will send you a NEW Catalog! Only US citizens can order from me, so if you need a recommendation from me, I know of a few that might be around you!

I posted earlier that I was going to use this stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for Kylie’s International Blog Hop, but I changed my mind! I didn’t think, when I was finished with it, that it yelled MASCULINE. So I am sharing it with you now!
Yes! This is the one that I told you about with the stained glass that came out even better than how I did it in the past! I touched the one that was drying before it was ready so I had to start all over. I don’t want to pray for Patience because I really don’t want to practice it a lot! 🙂 I’m not very good at it!
To start off, I scribbled on a piece of Window Sheet with some of SU!’s markers. I then placed little circles of the Fine Tip Glue Pen over the scribbles and the colors bled and create a really cool pattern!
I used Cajun Craze and Dapper Denim. See how it marbles?!! Once dry it is see through with the colors showing through what looks like an antique stained glass!!
Once it’s dry………..it takes time, it’s probably a good idea to leave it overnight so you don’t mess with it! Trust me!
Once the door is cut out with the thinlit, place the Window Sheet down on the back side (the side that opens).
NOT sure why I took this picture of the door UPSIDE down other than to get a better picture! Can you see the two colors?!!
I have magnet strips on the door between this layer and the next which will sandwich the Window Sheet so you won’t see it. I placed magnets under the inside of the door (under the saying too), so when the card is standing the door won’t flap open. It makes it snap together.
Here is a picture of the other side of the door attached so the Window Sheet is between them:
It REALLY looks like Antique glass, right?
Here is a pic of the card:
Can you see the dog and the cat cuddling together?! I put a piece of ribbon between the door and the ‘sandwich’ so it can’t be seen other than the part I want to help open the door.
Here is the door open:
The welcome mat is stamped and then I cut fringes in the layer under it so it looks like a mat!
I would love to hear what you think! Too much?
Here is a picture of the inside:
I love the dog basket!!

Today I am playing with Eastern Beauty, a NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up! This stamp set is so Versatile!! I have seen so many different ways of stamping with this set so I thought I would give it a try and just play with it! I DID end up making a card! And I love how it came out!
Here it is:
It’s a monochromatic card using ONE ink pad! The ink I used is Dapper Denim! To get the two different colors I just stamped once on a scratch paper before I stamped on the cardstock.
The cardstock I used is Dapper Denim and Soft Sky. The measurements are:
Dapper Denim: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″, scored at 1 1/4″ and another piece 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ (I had to cut it this way since the thinlit won’t fit through the Big Shot from side to side. The flap that I scored fits over the back of the 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ )
Soft Sky: 5 1/4″ X 4″ and 5 1/4″ X 3″
I then placed the curvy Thinlit from Seasonal Layers on the bottom of each piece (away from the flap on the one, and along the smaller Soft Sky) centering it on each side so it is even. NOT at at same time though!
Stamped this first:
Then turned stamp….
There are all kinds of ways to do this! You can place the diamond shape further apart and get this:
Then go from there:
I put a different middle on this one! Plus I stamped that pretty 3 point exclamation (not sure what to call it!) at each curve.
I stamped the Life is Beautiful stamp along the curve at the bottom twice and then once more stamped the ‘diamond’ shape but stamped off since I wanted it to be lighter than the words.
Here’s more images from this stamp set:
This one uses the stamp from the set that has the point in the middle, just line it up and stamp between each valley and it looks like a Spirograph from when I was a kid!
Hope you love this stamp as much as I do! I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with it! I would love to hear from you which image YOU like best! Just place a comment here and you will also be eligible for my Blog Candy! Which is this:
I LOVE Embossing folders, don’t you?! Comment before May 15th and you might get this in YOUR mail box! You can also put a comment on my Facebook Page TedderBearStamping and I’ll put you in the drawing!

I saw on Pinterest a card using the rubber stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called In This World. I had bought this set because I love anything Vintage and this called to me!
I changed it up so much that I went back to see hers and it was nothing like what mine turned out as! Has that happened to you? You can find her YouTube video here It’s very pretty, but not the way I went with mine. I followed some of her ideas, but that’s as far as I got!
Here is my version:
What do you think? It needed a ‘spot’ of color, so I added the ribbon and the Falling In Love Trinket. This picture has the Burlap ribbon in it, going along the side. I ran out (I’m making swaps for my Savannah OnStage event!!) so I just went without for the rest of the swaps.
Here is the other version:
I used VersaMark on the sides of BOTH swaps and added Gold Embossing Powder. Plus added it to the Sentiment to make it stand out.
Here is a close-up of the treatment on the Soft Sky:
I used almost every Stamp in this set! The only one I didn’t use is the chair. And I LOVE the chair, so I will have to come up with something to use that the next time!
I used the stamp from the In This World that has the long strip of dimensions? I have a question mark there because I’m not sure what to call it! Do you know? I stamped that image in Crumb Cake on the top left and bottom right. Then stamped again, along top and bottom left using Early Espresso ink. I stamped the one on the right bottom once on a scrap and then on the page, so the key will show up. That is stamped in Early Espresso too! I then stamped the blotchy stamp (that’s what I call it!) from the Stamp set Gorgeous Grunge using the Crumb Cake all over the card, stamping off every other time. I then sponged it with Crumb Cake on ALL sides, sponging really well so it went towards the center. Then sponged SOFTLY using the Early Espresso ink. Just to give it a dark outer edge.
I stamped the door on Very Vanilla (it doesn’t look like it does it!), that shows how much I sponged it! I used Early Espresso for the Door, and Crumb Cake for the sponging. But first I distressed the edges by ripping, bending and tearing , I tore off the corner. You have to make sure you do the distressing first, and THEN sponge. This way the edges that bend over are sponged on both sides. My shoulders were HURTING by the end of this, and I only made 30 cards! I usually make a LOT more, but I’m glad I didn’t this time!
Here is the inside:
I didn’t sponge the inside because I wanted it to stay pristine, so you can see what is written when sending it. Would you be happy to get this card? Or is it too messy?
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Vintage card, have I forgotten how to do it? I feel needy today for some reason! It could be because I was winging it the whole time! LOL
Here is the Blog Candy that I’m giving away today:
Congrat’s to the Winner: Sue Root!!

If you happened to see my Periscope video on this technique, I apologize that i didn’t get my orientation right, but it was my first one, so I’m happy I got it done, didn’t stutter and it looked good, even though you’ll get a crick in your neck watching it!
I promise next time I will get it right!! Here is the card I was working on. The white flower is Vellum and I used my score tool from my stampin’ score board. It not only makes the vellum stick out on the other side, but it makes it white!!
You can’t see the clear Wink of Stella on it, it’s so pretty!! I also added the gold thread behind the flower and behind the sentiment that I cut out with my Big Shot and Lots of Labels thinlits!
Here is the side so you can see the flower is puffy:
It’s hard to see,but WOW when you feel it, there is so much texture and interest on your card!
Keep an eye on my next Periscope, and if you leave a comment I will put you in a drawing for a free SAB stamp set, the drawing will be at the end of February, so you’ll have plenty of times to leave comments!!
